We always enjoy our stay at the Wayside Inn. The location is convenient for walking to restaurants and shopping. There is ample parking, which is a plus! The staff is professional, friendly and very helpful. The rooms are comfortable and nicely appointed.

The Wayside in is a lovely, quiet and comfortable boutique property in a fantastic location. It is perfectly located within a short stroll to all the great restaurants, bars and shopping Carmel has to offer. Even the beach is within easy walking distance. Rooms are a little tired and dated but they are very spacious, and the bed was super comfortable.

Carmels hidden jewel of a hotel! The rooms are large… there is a separate room with a fireplace which was wonderful to just sit by with coffee in the morning or a glass wine in the evening! The bed was to die for! I didn’t want to get out of it…I could see the fireplace from the next room. It was warm and cozy touch!!! Big bathroom… Easy check in… front desk very personable.. and helpful! We even got cookies at check in! Location… perfect!!! Walking distance to everything… Off the Main Street one block but your right there restaurants, shopping if you want to walk to the beach it’s probably a 10-15 minute walk… (That’s if you don’t get tempted by all the cool shops along the way!) No complaints! Will diffidently say there next time in Carmel!

Nice cozy Inn with a fireplace, kitchen & great location near Ocean Blvd and shops, market. Living room was comfortable to relax & watch TV next to the fireplace. The only issue is parking, but other than that, very quaint hotel.

Great beds and newly refurbished interior with small gas fireplace. Walking distance to everything and friendly staff. Parking in limited spaces was the only negative and had to make sure I moved my car from the street by 10:00 am. Staff had to move a car from their hotel space to accommodate mine.

This was a short one-nighter and it couldn't have gone better. The downsides are there is no a/c, no pool and the parking is very limited (but free). We stayed in the premiere suite with a king bed, fireplace and jetted tub. The room is probably one of the biggest I've ever stayed in and just very comfortable, especially the bed. The check-in and check-out staff were friendly and helpful. Water, coffee and treats in the lobby, plus cookies upon arrival! For a Saturday night, the price was quite hefty but I was happy to discover a weekday stay would be much less so we will be back for sure!

Wonderful location. Large, comfortable rooms, with kitchen. A quiet hotel and location. Easy parking, and parking can be a problem in Carmel. If staying in Carmel in the future we would return to this hotel.

Wonderful staff, rooms, location. Been staying here for over 10 years. Best place to stay in Carmel and convenient. A bit pricey but well worth it, rooms clean. Location great! We inform all of our friends to stay at Wayside Inn. Cookies in afternoon.
